    Gratitude 
  • Neighbour George, who talks about how Bikies 'belted the merciless shit' out of his cousin John, called his wife a bitch, then, after saying they made him feel like 'a piece of crap', he apologises for swearing.
  • BJ explaining how the facility in the Baldivis Bushlands where the worshippers of Oxtos lived was stormed by the 'jealous' AFP and captured Gary, along with 86 swords and 55 morning-stars, which were obviously buried underneath the site before the Oxtos Cult moved in, and it was just an "unlucky coincidence."
    • BJ requesting pocket money, old jewellery or pets to sell to raise money to get Gary out of jail.
  • Paps O'Sullivan, having lost his doves as they were all shot by the AFP, performs magic, by asking kids to use their imagination.
  • The story from The Book of Oxtos, which told of a tribe leader called Shane, who travelled up the mountain shaped like Roy Orbison and requested that Oxtos provide them with more light to help with the harvest. Oxtos responds by saying if Shane goes back to the village, he will find "More food that he'll ever need", only to find half the village turned into animals and birds, and other half eating the animals, or crying for their lost parents.
  • BJ reminding the kids at home to show their love for Oxtos each and every day, because "You don't want mommy and daddy to stop loving you, hmmm?"

  • Neighbour George, after losing another enterprise to Bikies.
    Trent: Sometimes Oxtos spreads his light, sometimes the Shadowman casts his shadows, you know? That's his will really.
    Neighbour George: Seems like I only get the fucking Shadowman.
  • Trent receives a letter from a fan, who drew a picture of his favourite Oxtos Story, When Oxtos burnt down the forest. and then writes that they "Hope to one day burn something down myself", which Trent quickly requests for them to not do that after reading it aloud.
  • A quick advert from clean comedian, Frankie Yabbiebait.
    Frankie Yabbiebait: Prince Charles, oh he'll probably be King Charles soon. What is he, a spaniel?!?
  • The children's story about Prophet Gary, written, drawn, edited and fact-checked by Gary himself. Highlights include that Gary being upset his money was no good after he spent all night making them out of paper and paint, escaping security by using his special running powers, which he got after huffing permanent markers and hiding in a roller shutter shop, called Shut Happens, where he met Trent.
  • BJ's song to the puppet Sal about how anything you do can be a ritual.
    Sal: So, anything you do regularly, can be a ritual!
  • Trent performs the 'Name Change Ritural', where he reveals his name used to be 'Trev', writes his old name on a piece of paper, and places it in a bowl of 'Badger's Liqueur' and does a prayer, which causes the paper to burst into flames. Then he listens for his name. A face appears in the bowl...
    The Face: Your name's Trent.
  • Trent once again asks for donations to get Gary out of jail, but admits that they are using a different address from the previous episode, as their old place got infested with Lung Weevils.

  • Paps O'Sullivan, once again down in the dumps after nobody saw his magic show.
    Linda: Who wants to see Paps doing some magic?
    The Angry Man: DO THE TRICK!!!
    • Pap's trick, The 'Pain Game', involves hiding a large needle under some cups and eliminating choices by slamming his hand down on the cups. Linda, understandably, has concerns. The trick is slightly inturputed by another showing from Frankie Yabbiebait.
    Frankie Yabbiebait: I don't know if you've heard that 'rap music', here's my impression of that, 'rap music'. (Cuts back to Hug The Sun)
    Paps: Should Linda do it?
    *Audience of Kids Cheer*, Paps grabs Linda's hand and slams in onto an empty cup.
    Paps: Now you try.
    The Angry Man: DO IT!!!
    • Linda does, after a small prayer to Oxtos to guide her... only to impale her hand on the spike. We only see Linda screaming and her hand for a second before cutting back to...

    • The Shadowman shows BJ his fingers... which makes him vomit up a ball.
    • Trent and BJ "defeat" the Shadowman by shining a torch at him. No words can describe, nor do justice, of how The Shadowman reacts, just watch the episode. Or the extended First Take.
    • The Shadowman then gives a speech with and ominous echo effect of how he will rise up with the strength of a thousand shadows and scare his victims... and BJ punches him in the face.
    Trent: Sorry about that, he's going through some things *Cuts to a commercial for 'Shut Happens'
  • Linda's 'Try New Things' section, where she 'sings' a song about letting your light shine. And is constantly interpreted by a police officer for not having a filming permit.
  • BJ and Trent wrap up the show, only for The Shadowman, now with two bloody tissues up his nose to scare them.

    Miracles 
The 'Craft Time' with BJ section, which has nothing to do with crafting and more likely BJ having a bad trip as ominous voices tell him that his wife doesn't exist, the audience of children laugh at him and Trent still insisting that he drinks water.
  • More "clean comedy" from Frankie Yabbiebait
    Frankie Yabbiebait: You get to have a threesome every night, and Jesus is in that room with you!
  • 'Silly Science' Where Linda, with the help of Professor Bloompants make bubbles using water, laundry detergent and some 'Special Gas'.
    • Linda remarks that making a snowman out of bubbles sounds safe. Until she takes a handful of the bubble mix 'filled with the heat giving love of Oxtos', which Professor Bloompants sets on fire.

  • Some foreshadowing for the next episode, Trent explains that Second Prophet Gary gets more powerful when it's hotter, and will be ascending to speak to Oxtos next week on the hottest day of the year. And has a clash of confidence when Sal asks him what will happen if Oxtos doesn't respond.
    • Also, Gary got into a fight at a pizza palore and got arrested, again. So they need to ask for donations again.
    • As the show wraps up, BJ comes in, still rather out of it and looking for his non-existant wife. The episode ends with a brief shot of Trent rubbing lotion onto a topless BJ's chest.

    Gary 
  • The episode starts with a special message to say Linda will no longer appear on the show, as she was caught stealing donations. Sal also mentions that she 'Doesn't even clean her bum properly. and she "Definitely not buried at 2-1 Aro-" and is cut off by the intro.
  • Trina introducing the show by saying that the Prophet Gary will 'get high' and ascend. And that Gary has practiced 'Getting High' for a really long time. She then asks the audience 'How could they get high?'

    Frankie Yabbiebait: Nana, gave me a smack. (strums guitar) Nana gave me a smack! A smack on the bottom, for being a naughty boy!
  • Another commercial for Prophet Gary's self guides, where Gary may be running out of wisdom...

  • Trent filming on location outside a petrol station on to the way to the secret Ascension site, which they won't reveal so they don't tip off "The Filthy AFP." Which ends with Gary running out of the station with his arm full of food yelling '"Leg it! Leg it! Start the car!"
  • Boogie Down with BJ, where after a brief dance, BJ (Whose skin is now starting to show burn botches) decides to see 'What is in the Fridge?' What follows is a strange and scary sequence, where BJ follows to voice of his wife into the fridge, which leads him outside the studio, take his clothes off and where he ultimately gets hit by a car.
  • Another example of Gary's "Wisdom"
    • A follow-up commercial includes Gary's Self Defense Classes, with Gary making basic Kung-Fu moves, complete with sound effects, and a scene with Trent where he allows Gary to win a fight without him even touching him. Even better, as Trent drops to his knees, He explodes.
  • The whole Ascension Segment.
    • The Introduction to the Ascension, which is just the "Try New Things" intro, only with Trina's face now coving up Linda's face. And the face of every other person whose face is in shot.
    • Trina cuts to an "undisclosed location", but the subtitle clearly says LIVE FROM THE BALDIVAS BUSHLANDS before quickly fading away.
    • Trent delivers a message from The Second Prophet Gart to the kids.
    Trent: And I quote, "The AFP are dogs. Stupid Dog Bitch Dogs." He also wanted to do a cooking segment where he made Pruno, but unfortunately, we don't have time for that.
    • Just as Trent starts losing faith in Gary, who has mostly been drinking beer and Dog Milk, and stated he wished Gary took this more seriously and thinking he isn't the one A beam of light shines down on Gary, and he starts levitating. That's right! OXTOS IS REAL!
